People of the Lab
MA in Brain & Cognitive Science at Ben-Gurion University. In the lab I study the mechanism underlying facial recognition among different populations: Typically developed adults and children, persons diagnosed with autism, and those born with Developmental Prosopagnosia. I explore how face exposure (experience) affects our ability to recognize and distinguish between faces. I examine the effect of the "regression-to-average" phenomenon in various cases of visual perception of faces, using biases and calibrations known to affect perception (the other age effect and the other race effect).
